Phil, Alex, Bruce and Alex decided to enter the Temple and investigate cult activities having been ambushed on the way to town. Bravely they left the Cleric to guard the horses. Fighter, Ranger, Wizard and Thief barely made it two tiles before they found themselves with three players down and only two surges to heal with. Game over.
Regroup. This time Alex’s thief led the way backed up by Phil’s cleric for healing. he required lots including a potion. Mike’s Fighter and Bruce’s Ranger dealt with lots of monsters. Every time the players got treasure it was stolen by the invisible stalker who had amassed quite a hoard by the end. The players did so well this time they required no healing surges. The Wizard this time was left behind to guard the horses and is consequently the richest fifth player if we ever have more for the second or later adventures in the series. Definitely will be taking the Thief and the Cleric for every scenario now !
Next we played Thunderbirds. we only had two turns before Mike announced we had been defeated by Hood. Oh well!
